A man has just narrated what happened after he paid the fee for the UTME of a teenage girl who was working at a bar in Lagos.
According to the man who identifies as @temiokomi on Twitter, he was drinking at the bar years ago when he spotted the 17-year-old girl serving. He asked why she wasn’t in school and she opened up on how her parents were unable to afford her exams fees. He volunteered to pay and the rest, as they say, is history.

A few years ago, I was drinking at this joint I normally drink at in G.R.A when this young waitress served. Looked all of 17 & it was quite late. I was a bit bothered. She looked way too young. So I asked her. She was 17. Pretty young girl I could see her immediate future at that joint, with pervy old men like me drinking there, so I asked her why she wasn’t in school.
Familiar tale of no money so she was waiting tables until she could save up to buy forms for SSCE & JAMB. I don’t remember how much it was but I asked her: “If you get money for these forms, you will stop doing this job?” She said; “Yes.” So I dipped me hands & pulled out my lean stash. Gave her the loot & told her she could quit. I don’t do appreciation. I don’t know how to handle it.
She calls me up the next day & her mom gets on the phone & starts praying for me. Truly embarrassing stuff. That was the last time I spoke with her or her mom. Fast forward to 10 minutes ago. She just called me. Said she lost my card but her mom just found it.
She is doing her convocation on Friday. Ladies & gents; I’m flummoxed. Her name is Feyi & I had forgotten about her. Truthfully, I don’t even recall her face again.She is a graduate.I win 2019, you heifers!
